Leonard Charles Evetts (1909-97) was born in Newport, Monmouthshire and studied at the Royal College of Art, including the study of stained glass under Martin Travers. In a working life of over 60 years he was an exceptionally prolific stained glass artist. He was also a calligrapher, painter, author and teacher, historian and conservationist, but above all a designer.
